Kia Ora,

I am also trying to get any information on the other whanau on my mum's side. Her name was Ari Tuatara and her sister was Te Raupai Tuatara, both from Raglan. Their Dad's name is Dave Tuatara, their mum was Paraeka who passed away many many years ago. Koro Dave remarried Betty (surname unsure), who had children who passed away. Their names are David Tuatara, Collin Tuatara. I know they raised a lot of children as well. Sonia, Larry, Rangi and that's really all I can remember at the moment, as I was one of the little one's, when we were last there. I know I have cousins Troy & Nigel who are descendants of David Tuatara (hope they are all well!) I know that Koro Dave was a spokesman for the our former moari queen. I would appreciate anything, anyone can tell me.
